Cyberknife

A MINIMALLY INVASIVE, PAIN-FREE APPROACH TO CANCER TREATMENT

WHAT IS CYBERKNIFE?

CyberKnife is a robotic radiosurgery system designed to deliver high doses of radiation with sharp accuracy to treat cancerous tumors. CyberKnife provides an outpatient, pain-free, minimally invasive breakthrough approach to cancer treatment – providing hope to thousands of New Jersey patients with tumors that were once considered inoperable. The CyberKnife system treats several cancers and benign tumors throughout the body.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

CyberKnife is the first system to track a tumor's true location during treatment, providing the sub millimeter accuracy needed to destroy the malignancies of the tumor, while preserving surrounding healthy tissues and organs.  Additional benefits include:

  • Pain-free sessions
  • Treatments reduce radiation therapy sessions from 20-50 to as little as 5 or less
  • Minimally invasive treatment
  • No incisions or blood loss
  • No anesthesia required
  • Minimal, if any, recovery time
  • Patients can return to regular activities immediately after treatment

EXPERT CARE, CLOSE TO HOME

The Hackensack Meridian Health CyberKnife Center at Riverview Medical Center is home to the region’s most experienced CyberKnife radiation oncology team. Along with a multidisciplinary team of experts, the team has performed over 8,000 CyberKnife treatments for patients since 2005.

“Our main goal is to cure cancer. And our second goal is to do that at minimal cost to our patient’s quality of life. CyberKnife offers an opportunity to tackle cancer and do just that.” - Adnan Danish, M.D., Medical Director, CyberKnife Center at Hackensack Meridian Health.
